Did the movement in the earth’s crust in Japan affect the pressure on the faults in California?

    An earthquake of the size of the recent one in Japan is almost certain to have future geological effects. This particular earthquake was caused by the pacific plate subducting under Japan, moving the country eastward by a few feet. All speculation at this point concerns future effects on the faults meeting around Japan; no major change has occurred (or has been reported, so far as I can tell) at the California fault line and the shift in plates has not increased the risk of earthquake in California.
